    Thank you for your help. We found a switch that seemed to have tripped on the float pump mechanism. It seems to be working fine now. Once again "Thanks" and Merry christmas!@

Don't try running the machine without water, as I suspect you can burn out the pump. Our machine wasn't getting enough water, so we removed the water intake valve and cleaned out a bit of grit that came thro the water line. If you are hooked up to a well system, there is always the chance the valve's screen can be clogged. Do you have excessively hot water? A repairman told me that after about 5 yrs, water intake valves have a rubber part (washer?) that expands with the heat and blocks the water from flowing into the machine. This turned out to be our problem - it's an easy part to replace. As for an almost new machine, this hardly seems possible. Sorry I can't be more help.

How do I fix my washing machine? It doesn't appear to feed enough water into the machine. The machine runs through a full cycle but appears low on water even in the middle of a full wash cycle.


I can try to explain the difference between today and the old washing machine. My question would be, are you satisfied with the washing result? If so, then everything is fine.
There are four factors that affect the washing and they make one single round (duration, temperature, mechanical action, chemical action). Old washing machines are spending more water, more detergents, more electricity power, and consequently more spoiled environment and duration of washing was app. from 1 to 1.5 hours. Today washers use less water, less detergent, less energy power, less polluting but because longer duration of washing cycle app. from 2 to 3 hours, wash result was the same as in the old machine.
I think that today confuses people how is possible that washing machine wash three hours (longer than before) and consumes less energy? Believe me this is true, and every service tehnician will explain it.
Because old habits many customers put the same amount of detergent (do not read the manufacturer's instructions) and therefore have problems with the skin. That is why an increasing number of washing machine has the option of additional rinsing cycles.

I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher that is 12 years old. The "clean" light on the control panel is on and the machine won't start it's cycle. Can I reset the control panel?


Hello Lisa. Go to your electrical panel for your home or apartment and turn off the circuit to the dishwasher for two full minutes. Check to be sure that you have turned off the correct circuit by looking to see that the "clean" light is off. After two full minutes turn the circuit back on. This alone may reset the machine and the control panel.

If it does not, then you will have a decision to making regarding repair VS replace. I always make this recommendation to my customers with any appliance over 5 years old. Replace it. In this instance, the new dishwashers use much less water, much less electricity, are much quieter, and they do a much better job. The advancements in dishwasher technology and design have been remarkable in the past three years. Joe

Dishes have filmy finish


hello. this will help a great deal.

First of all empty out your dishwasher, toss in two cups of plain white or cider vinegar and run it on the highest and longest cycle.

Always run the hot water in the sink first and start the dishwasher only when the water is as hot as it will get.

This wash will clean out your dishwasher thoroughly.

Then always do your dishes after you have rinsed any residue off of them before placing them in the dishwasher and I always recommend the pot scrubber cycle if you have one.

I had the same issue and you will never beleive the solution.
Steps to follow:
1) run one full cycle with no dishes or soap
2) run one full cycle with a dishwasher cleaner like Jetdry
3) run one full cycle with a gallon of white vinager
4) never put soap in the extra in and only fill the main soap bin half way.

should work fine from here on out, but never fill main bin more then half way when you do dishes. also run the hot water in the sink until the water is very hot before starting the dish washer.

Turned machine back on, again heard some sort of activity but again no water came. Tried twisting the dial through the washing cycles, detergent cup dispensed detergent and dry heat come on, but no water.

GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle


Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.
